2009 Insect Fair 10

Elena, a youth visitor to the Penn State Department of Entymology's Great Insect Fair, holds a monarch butterfly while her father Nathan Aungst takes her picture. The pair were inside the butterfly enclosure set up in the Snider Agricultural Arena as part of the Great Insect Fair held on Saturday, Oct. 3. An annual event held by the Penn State Department of Entomology, the Great Insect Fair draws upwards of 6,000 visitors each year from across Pennsylvania and the East Coast. This year, however, event organizers estimated close to 10,000 would check out the 6-hour-long event.
